Palin’s Record on Subsistence Hunting

Sarah Palin’s record of trying to overturn subsistence hunting and fishing laws is attracting some attention. Her views are a beautiful example of the middle class construction of wilderness, that wilderness is simply for recreation, something to be enjoyed in short bursts, or exploited to exhaustion. There appears to be no place for subsistence hunting in such an outlook.

Anyone have any other leads on this topic?

    It’s a tough world when your own appointee speaks out against her appointment.
